Short Cycle

My cycle used to be 28 days, then 25, and now it averages about 23 days. Is this unusual?

Re: Short Cycle

Hi Maria,
My cycles became shorter (21-24 days) when I started peri-menopuase about 18 months ago. I'm 48, and am still getting periods and they're still short, but I've had my hormone levels tested, and I'm starting to 'change', although it could still take a few years. My gyn say's it's common for cycles to be come shorter before you start missing them.
Depending on your age, this could be the cause. Otherwise, maybe your cycle is just changing. 23 days is normal for some women. Do you have any other symptoms?

Re: Short Cycle

It could be the start of peri-menopause. Problems with your thyroid or hormonal imbalances can also cause strange cycles as can changes in eating habits or exercise. Your gynecologist should be able to check your hormone levels on cycle day 3 and be able to tell if you are entering peri.

Re: Short Cycle


I am not a gynecologist nor relate to your situation.

I help ease your mind, it's best to call your gynecologist.(if you haven't done so already)
